Locke Ober Closed for Lunch

1/26/2009 12:01:00 AM
Apparently I'm about three weeks late reporting on this since Locke Ober stopped serving lunch at the start of the new year, but I don't think you can really blame me - I haven't had a lunch break in three years. I think many of you are out there like me - at the very most we step out at noonish, grab a sandwich, and eat it at our desk while returning emails. Bleh.

"It was a very difficult thing for us, not having lunch at Locke-Ober," said Paul Licari, who along with co-owner Lydia Shire decided to suspend the midday meal."

The restaurant is still open for dinner. But the last lunch was served on Dec. 31. A small sign advertising "Recession Hours" was posted in a window. The restaurant's lunch era had been suspended indefinitely, and with it, an era in the city.

Maybe, Shire said, they'll begin serving lunch again next month at the bar only. Or maybe, she said, they'll relaunch in the spring. Or if not then, definitely by the fall, when the restaurant's business historically picks up.

I've heard good things about Locke Ober, but I've never eaten there myself. I've only been there twice in all. The first was to meet a client for drinks, and the second was for drinks during a failed first date (I say failed because I didn't manage to get a 2nd one).
